There are some aspects of old universe that should be add to New 52
Doesn't matter as long as the stories good
I voted for the reboot. There are times when I miss the old universe, but there's still a lot that I like about the reboot and some of it wouldn't have been possible in the old DCU. Wonder Woman's main title bored me to tears before the reboot, but now it's one of my favorite DC titles. I also like that they've integrated the Wildstorm characters into the DCU. It feels like it has the potential be much larger than the old universe.
The DC relaunch was successful and was executed in what was most likely the best way it could given restrictions we wouldn't know about. No, your idea wouldn't have worked. Now move on.
Reboot. Thst time go more with the silver age. A bit like New Frontier but in the contemporary age, don't forget about Ralph, Red and Rex, eventually do a version of the JLI.
You know what, as far as I care, the whole thing could be set in the 60s, why not.

What's wrong with the Aquaman reboot? I'm just getting into Aqua man, but I've heard literally nothing but good things about Geoff Johns' run on Arthur's title.Aquaman
Anyway, I recognize that the New 52 was necessary from a marketing standpoint, but I completely feel that it could have been done better. Really, though, my biggest problem is with DC's current talent pool. The Big 2 are best when they are constantly striving against each other, and right now, Marvel seems to have WAY more top talent. DC needs to start treating creators better or something, because as good as the top writers and artists they have are, there just aren't enough of them.

Man, I prefer the DCU before the "Flash of Two Worlds" issue, which introduced the concept of the multiverse.
I love the pre-flashpoint/52 world but I love Aquaman,Batgirl,Batwoman,and Worlds' Finest and I miss BOP,Secret Six, Justice Society,Justice League, Titans,Outsiders,and Power Girl
To paint comic books as childish and illiterate is lazy. A lot of comic books are very literate - unlike most films.

In the interest of not having an infinite, infinite number of threads on this same topic, I'm STICKING this one up to the top.

Up to a point, being a narcissist seems de rigeur for a comics fan. Realizing it is the first step to getting over it.
For people who just joined this ... latest addition to the massive pre-existing cluster of threads, I've pretty much said my thoughts in the relevant link in my sig.
As far as I am concerned, the pre-Flashpoint universe (and all other fictional universes and continuities) never stopped existing, and can be revisited when one reads their stories again. I still want more new good DCU stories, of course.
I grew up reading Marv Wolfman and George Pérez's Teen Titans. Nightwing was/is my favorite character in DC, Tim Drake was my Robin, Wally West was my Flash, and Kyle Rayner was my Green Lantern. I grew up reading these characters, watching them grow and mature. I am having the hardest time connecting with them in the DCnU.
Its not that I think the DCnU sucks or the stories are bad, I just don't feel any emotional attachment to the characters at all. DCnU Red Robin is not the Tim Drake I grew up reading, Nightwing and all those stories with the Titans I read never happened to DCnU Dick Grayson, Wally West doesn't appear to exist, and even if he does he never was best friends with Dick Grayson and Kyle Rayner, etc. Reading the DCnU feels like I am reading a bunch of Elseworlds stories without the bizzare and crazy stuff an Elseworlds book could get away with.
Did anyone else have this problem? If so how did you get past it? I grew up a huge DCU fan and honestly it kinda sucks looking at scenes that in theory are awesome, but I don't care about because they are happening to characters I no longer have any connection to.
